Abstract:

THE OBJECTIVE OF THIS PHASE I PROPOSAL IS TO ASSESS THE ACCURACY OF A NON-INVASIVE, ISOTHERMAL REBREATHING METHOD FOR MEASURING THE MIXED VENOUS PARTIAL PRESSURE OF HIGHLY SOLUBLE GASES. THIS APPROACH WILL ALLOW THE SEMI-INVASIVE (WITHOUT A PULMONARY CATHETER) MEASUREMENT OF THE VENTILATION/PERFUSION (VA/Q) DISTRIBUTION OF THE LUNG. DURING PHASE I, A PROTOTYPE DEVICE WILL BE DESIGNED, FABRI- CATED, AND TESTED ON DOGS. IF SUCCESSFUL, THE DESIGN COULD LEAD TO A LOWER COST, EASIER METHOD OF OBTAINING VA/Q DISTRIBUTIONS ON CRITICALLY ILL PULMONARY PATIENTS. THIS WOULD ALLOW ACCESS TO THE ESTIMATED $130 MILLION TOTAL UNITED STATES VA/Q MARKET.
